About No-REDD

NO REDD in Africa Network (NRAN) is a platform of African Civil Society organizations, movements, activists and individuals that oppose all kinds of REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation). The NRAN was founded during the World Social Forum, held in Tunis, Tunisia, in March 2013.

Our Areas of Focus

Forests & Biodiversity

Forests are not a mere collection of trees but are complex, biodiverse ecosystems that support human communities, other beings and overall health of the planet. Direct benefits to human communities include the fact that forests are spaces for cultural, spiritual, health, socio-economic and educational activities…

Plantations & Agriculture

Plantations are monocultural collections of trees and crops. Plantations and industrial agriculture are major drivers of deforestation and displacement of human communities. NRAN rejects carbon trading and carbon offsets of any kind by any name including with soils, crops, grasslands, and genetically engineered…

False solutions are built on principles of market environmentalism and include carbon trading, various types of REDD, Net Zero, decarbonization…

Extractivism equally provokes militarisation and displacement of communities. NRAN supports communities in the defence of their territories, including their right to reject exploitative…
